As the temperature falls into the 70s and 60s for highs it is time to get back out into the shop. As is usually I start with a tune-up of the tools. This morning it was the Triton Router in the router table.

I am ciours about how much runout do you think is acceptable.

I clampled my dial indicator to the table and placed a 6" steel alignment rod into the collect. Below are the measurements I got at different heights of the router lift.

I don't see any problem with the numbers, but I thought I would check. What is your take?

.005 and under you are fine. For cutting profiles and grooves, a small amount in runout will not be seen in the finished product.
Do you build wooden tuning tools for nuclear reactors?
